Join this webinar presented by the National Association for County & City Health Officials (NACCHO) National surveys and polls have shown that many people intend to decline a COVID-19 vaccine when it is offered to them. These attitudes have fluctuated over time and vary from person to person. However, factors such as race, ethnicity, gender, age, education, and political affiliation are associated with COVID vaccine hesitancy or acceptance, with communities of color more likely to have hesitancy. Although the existing surveys and polls provide some information about how the public views COVID vaccines, we know the topic needs more study so we can better understand the underlying factors influencing opinions on the vaccines.
This webinar will share findings and insights on the public views of COVID-19 vaccination from (1) a national panel survey conducted November 25 – December 7; and (2) 25 online community conversations conducted December 2 – 14, including local conversations with African American, Latinx, and Tribal communities and regional conversations with people undecided about vaccination. This webinar will also explore how health departments and tribal governments can support their communities in making decisions about getting vaccinated against COVID-19.
